The New York Yankees are atop the American League (AL) East standings after pulling away from the Tampa Bay Rays in a 13-5 win in MLB on Sunday.
New York's offense got going in the fourth after trailing 5-3. Aaron Hicks hit his first home run of the season to tie the game and the Yankees never looked back.
Brett Gardner also came up big offensively with a three-hit game after entering the day hitting just .140 (six for 43) in May. He finished with three RBIs and two runs scored.
"It just proves the fight that our team has," Hicks said, via MLB.com. "We really are doing 'next man up' and guys are performing and doing what they need to do to help this team win."

Adam Ottavino (2-1) was awarded the win and Chance Adams got his first save of the season. Diego Castillo was tagged with his third loss.
Tampa Bay now sit just half a game behind New York.
Brilliant Bieber shuts out Orioles
Shane Bieber pitched a shutout for the Cleveland Indians in his first complete game. The right-hander allowed just five hits while striking out 15 against the Baltimore Orioles.
There is just no stopping Freddie Freeman. The Atlanta Braves star has now hit home runs in four consecutive games for the first time in his career after delivering again against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Red Sox reliever Brandon Workman worked around a one-out walk in the ninth against the Astros to record his first career save. Boston ended Houston's 10-game winning streak in the 4-3 victory.
More misery for Mets
It was the second straight game the Mets were shutout by the Miami Marlins. New York had just two hits by J.D. Davis while the rest of the lineup came up empty.
